How do you typically read? books, ebook or listen to audio? I have been trying to listen to audiobooks while I knit….two birds one stone thing, but I tend to get distracted compared to when I’m reading an actual book. Do either of you have a “schedule” , reading time each day, knitting time ??? Thank you for letting me obsess over your reading / knitting time.Misc. - ~The Black Needle Society VIP - Use the code JAVAPURL5 for a discount on your first box of box to box subscriptions (the 6 & 12 month boxes already have a discount built in; not valid on special edition boxes.~Support the Podcast, Become A Patron~Support the Podcast, Join us on YouTube~Each week, we create a list on Bookshop of all the books we talk about in that week's episode.
